Dana Point Headlands Professional Review and Guide
"The sea cliffs at Dana Point are revered by historians as the site where Spanish vaqueros threw hides over the cliffs and down to waiting ships as described in Richard Henry Dana’s Two Years Before the Mast. The sheer cliffs remain, but the 2,500-slip Dana Point Marina occupies much of the coastline below. Just west of that marina, though, you’ll find a fine wild stretch of rocky beach and dramatic headland, a little piece of old California that you can fully explore during low tides."
